, create millions of jobs, and cut the deficit. voters understand their big ideas and they like them, but undecided voters aren't sure which guy can turn promises into economic reality. i've got two of the best political minds in the country to break this down for us. candy crowley our chief political correspondent, host of "state of the union with candy crowley" and mark preston, cnn's political director. candy, let's start with you. from the very first primary which you covered to the last hour of voting, the economy has been and will be issue number one. is there anything either candidate can really say or do in the next few days to sway voters who are still not convinced? >> i don't know that even if they could, they have anything left to say or do to convince these voters. you know as well as i do, we're going to get one more jobs report and we're also going to get the report for how the economy, the gdp, how the economy did in the third quarter, so, you know, it's possible that they will have some talking points around that but at this point in a campaign, they don't want to sa
the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd. because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now.wo we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate that would be far below where it is today. he hasn't delivered on his promises. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya? i mean here we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack. that attack went on for seven hours, we now know that secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. where is the leadership. it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks and ej dionne in the final nine days? >> i think this has been the worst campaign i've ever covered. i think they're both ending on the same note they started. obama is doing a negative campaign, he's got an ad out which is called "remember" which is about romne

taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of them will get the 12 million jobs in four years that they're promising? >> it would be a very good outcome. i think it's a long shot, frankly. >> your answer is smarter than mine. i said i'd wear a dress for a week if it happened. you're in less danger. thanks very much for being with us. >>> let's get back to ohio. let's get back to the auto bailout. president obama bailed out the auto industry. mitt romney says the bailed out auto companies are using that money to ship jobs to china. we'll get to the bottom of w

, and president bush cut taxes and we went from having a surplus to having a deficit. so i think there's -- i mean if you look at the tax policy center they basically said it's very hard to see evidence of exactly how raising taxes figures into all of this. >> several things. i was talking about president bush 41 in 1990 when they raised taxes, and it was supposed to help us reduce the deficit, in fact, congress just spent all the money that came in. when poll significances raise taxes, whether it's in california, we've seen the devastation there. illinois, we've seen the damage to that economy, maryland. when politicians raise taxes instead of cutting spending, you have lousy economic growth. those states, and you can compare either the reagan recovery, lower taxes, spending restraints, less regulation versus the very weak obama economy, wore where he did all the opposite things of reagan and got everything that an economist would tell you gets bad in an economy. let's compare state by state. california versus texas. illinois versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you
the deficit, eliminate the president's health care law if he's elected president of the united states, and he's also going at what he believes to be a problem for the president in the final days of the campaign. he's been saying that the president has not been living up to his promises of bipartisanship in washington, and romney says if he's elected president, he will bring the country together. here's what he had to say. >> he said he was going to be a post partisan president. he has been most partisan in dividing and attacking. he also said he would cut the deficit in half. he doubled it. he was going to get unemployment down to 5.2% right now. we just learned on friday it's up to 7.9%. >> earlier in the day, the candidate's wife, ann romney, visited the back of the campaign plane and handed out breakfast food to the reporters covering the race for the last year and a half. asked how she's feeling about the race, she said she's been touched by the people she's run across in the final weeks of the campaign. people have come up to her and told her about their struggles in this economy right n

. that's crazy. but because we've got such a gigantic deficit right now, peter, you're exactly right. if the congress says okay, let's put more money in the 'til for fema, that money is probable lea going to be borrowed from china. >> peter: also, people sign up and they pay for flood insurance program and so they pay premiums and it should be paid. but there is a cost. >> gretchen: yeah. i think most americans don't mind paying taxes if it's going to help these devastated people. they might want to crack down on waste that we're in the government first. >> peter: that's absolutely right. >> gretchen: so when the president went to new jersey yesterday, he flew over point pleasant, one of the most devastated regions in new jersey with governor christie. somebody else had something else in mind. apparently they're not a president obama fan. because in all the sand that washed up, somebody put letters r, o, m, n, e, y. >> steve: why? because they love him. we have gotten some cables labeled secret that shows that about less than a month before the assault on our consulate in benghazi, a
. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tuesday is going to look like. that was a state affected by sandy. all of those really interesting trends, di
on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as the ideal republican candidate. i don't think necessarily -- one way or the other, you know, i never lived under reagan's presidency so i can't speak to that. our generation sees the other social issues that w
in there taking obama on for you'll of his failures. you haven't done anything for deficit reduction, for balancing the budget, for jobs creation. those are the issues that most voters say are determines their choice in this election and then, of course, he said it was about climate change and global warming but at the end he had the usual litany of marriage and abortion. also, it was all over the map and i just thought it was an ill-timed unnecessary endorsement when his city is suffering. >> five days before the general election. he's allowed to endorse -- >> and swing from new york to all the way to obama. >> i think he made a very important point, which is that hurricane san deerks the greatest storm that new york has ever seen in his life time may well be linked to global warming. jennifer granholm, last words with you? >> absolutely. it was a tipping point moment for him and what he is saying is that this storm should be a wake-up call across the nation and the person who will have a clean energy plan to be able to mitigate. so damages of us closing our eyes to climate change i
